“Conspiracy Queries” — Baltimore Key Bridge #1 — Unsettling, Growing List of Oddities and Questions, including potential relations to ‘yet another’ directed energy attack?

This is #1 in a series — Summary + Index — https://soundquality.org/sets#baltimore-key-bridge

 

“[Pres] Biden called the Francis Scott Key Bridge one of “the most important elements” holding up the economy in the Northeast.”

“Shipping is critical to Baltimore’s economy, as it’s the ninth-largest U.S. port for international cargo, handling roughly 52 million tons of goods in 2023. Maryland Gov. Wes Moore told CNN that 8,000 jobs and $191 million dollars of daily economic activity are directly related to the bridge and passage.” SOURCE

“Last year, the port saw nearly 850,000 car and truck imports, according to Maryland state data, marking it a top port for the auto industry. It’s also the home to more than 15,000 jobs.” SOURCE (cargo records SOURCE)
“Baltimore is the leading US port for vehicles, the import of sugar and second in the nation for coal exports.” SOURCE + SOURCE

“Terrible shrieking of metal” — “Dead Silent” — The Growing List of Oddities and Questions surrounding the Baltimore Key Bridge / Francis Scott Key Bridge / Baltimore Beltway (I-695) Bridge Collapse after collision by a Container Ship named “DALI” which had collided elsewhere before.  Baltimore harbor.  Port of Baltimore.

 

Video comment — “The “super cranes” were video’d and photographed just south of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge one day, not even 24 hours, after the calamity.  That means the cranes were being mustered BEFORE the calamity.  Just like FEMA showing up before the Paradise California “wildfires” and similar magical ‘coincidunce’.”

Video comment — “Didn’t Trump just make some comment that was heavily edited/manipulated by the massmediot to make it sound like he threatened car imports? 3 months ago CNBC ran a 10-minute special on Port of Baltimore ?v=b6PNc8xzEus — weird sudden interest, and then Wham!”

Video comment — “Also suspicious is the perfectly-lit, perfectly-framed, perfect-vantage-point, perfectly timed video of the entire episode … reeks REEKS of Zapruder all over again.”

Video comments — “THE WIRE season 2 episode 1 has a boat “with electrical problems” and “loss of engine power” that stops “in the shipping channel” right near that exact piling. Montage shots are of steel girders decayed, kind of resembling toppled bridge girders, subjectively. So, kind of like 911 which had predictiveprogramming all over massmedia. Yes, it is highly suspect, and yes, especially given THE WIRE episode and also reality, it sure seems plausaible, your suggestion of premeditation. Almost no one killed, so no pesky famly and insurance; almost no cargo lost; power goes out at perfect time to cover the dramatic redirection, aiming the (“who could have imagined?!?”) missile directly into the slim target single-weakest-point perfect for wiping out second most important supply chain transport route for heavy and hazardous, at practically the Mason-Dixon line just as in past Civil War. Hmmmm. Geeee… no doubt total coincidunce… /// The mayday call could have been hoaxed after the fact.. The elec problems existed, reportedly, at dock, so there would presumably be impetus by captain to NOT report elec problems, reporting of which would have naturally been delayed until last possible moment. Even if the mayday call had been made the moment DALI left dock, it still would have only given half an hour for response. When was the last time you saw police respond within half hour? The whole timeline is highly suspect. /// At 9:08 I see close-up drone footage of structural steel girders melted and wilted like wet spaghetti, just like in the 911 rubble. Ship’s deck and hull, massive heavy steel, also appears to have been vaporized. Very extremely suspicious of some kind of energy weapon involved? What do you see at 9:08 and thereabouts?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRGmgR8IYrE

From video comments: “tug boats absent. “impossible” 8 knot speed after standing-still at dock not even 6 miles away. all power going off/on/off, absurd. so many oddities, questions.”

“…it would require approximately 1,180,463,232 feet or approximately 224 miles for a 4,000,000-pound container ship to accelerate to reach a speed of 8 knots, assuming a moderate acceleration rate of 1 foot per second squared.” PROBLEM IS bridge is under 6 miles from dock… so WTF? How was it going so fast in such short distance? The speed ‘impossibility’ alone is highly suspect. That speed, near so many vital points and obstacles would be criminally insane anyway. Also, why was it course-plotted so near the bridge support? How can all the lights/power flick all-at-once off then on then off … is it really all wired thru one breaker or switch? That’s absurdly unlikely. TONS of questions and oddities already. How coincidental that it wipes out a major supply-chain artery, too. Not even 12 hours after, there’s yip yap about 5 years and $5 billion for replacement. That’s more than double DC’s pork-barreled Wilson bridge. WTF? Guess we’ll have some more pork-barrel-laden threatened government shutdowns with more $1 trillion stopgap payola bloats…”  [ Note the gross lading weight is over 95,000 tons (that’s approx 50,000 shipping containers), or over 190 million pounds, 50x the weight used in this calculation, thus making that 224 miles 50x longer, or much greater acceleration would be required (from a much more powerful engine). ]

From video comments: “How convenient for supply-chain-destruction that the ship [guided-missile-direct-]hit that comparatively pencil-thin “needle in the haystack” [bridge-support] instead of merely floundering, or running aground or veering into one of the very many surrounding docks.”

AIS/GPS data shows an apparently intentional guidance to collide with the bridge pillar.

“Chesapeake Bay is the longest local-piloted route in US.” 4:15 into:

eSysman Superyachts analysis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyt4vS2F_SU

Note the data clarification — speed of DALI now given as 8.7 knots.

DALI speed revised to 8.7 knots — eSysman Superyachts analysis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyt4vS2F_SU

Two indie analyses appear to accept without question the 8.7 knot speed (and therefore plausible acceleration over distance) of such a massively heavy cargo ship, so I will defer on point (3).  Note that the “6 miles” I estimated is barely 3 miles making the required acceleration that much more radical.  (Sal Mercagliano / What is Going on With Shipping? youtube channel, and also eSysman Superyachts).

From comments: “the tunnels are too small – especially for trucks. This is actually so awful it’s going to ruin Baltimore shipping for years. They will drop from 13th to probably 28th now -with Hampton Roads picking up the load.”

“Baltimore Port worker tells ITV News that the Dali ship that crashed into the Francis Scott Key bridge experienced total power failures in the two days that it was docked before the crash: “It was having power problems with draining electrical popping circuit breakers and everything with the mechanics that were working on it,” Julie Mitchell, Co-Administrator from Container Royal said. Container Royal monitors the tonnage on all containers that come in and out of Baltimore Port”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39w6aQFKSQ

@greggs623   So I’m Longshoreman at the port of Baltimore and was working Dundalk a couple of hours before this happened, I was told by my union brothers that the ship lost power a couple times why we were discharging and loading the ship. They knew the ship had a power problem before it left port and still decided to set sail.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39w6aQFKSQ

@emmettjones5165  My father-in-law works at the terminal across the Patapsco from this site and was in the bunkhouse this morning when the Key Bridge collapsed early this morning. He said it was a terrible shrieking of metal, then a resounding thud that shook the building.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZbUXewlQDk
@growleym504  Just to clarify, when backing down, a single screw ship with a right hand wheel, i.e. a right hand pitch prop, will tend to back to port. The stern will swing to port. The bow therefore will point more to starboard, and that is exactly what we see here. Most ships do have a right hand prop, i.e. when looking at it from astern, it turns clockwise when going ahead.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZbUXewlQDk

===

Future prediction based on occult numerology — Only 8 people involved being reported at around 12 hours after incident….therefore, the occult numerology requiers one more to make 9.  Will the captain off himself?  A bum on roadway, body to be found sometime soon?  Will one of the divers drown?  One body will be found in one of the crushed containers?  Just guessing, but there likely will be a 9th victim, to meet the occult numerology expectation.

“Again, we must take the word of the lying massmedia and gov — gov from gubere meaning to control, ment from meante meaning mind — government, literally mind control”

“WOW This looks like a movie”

In 2016 —

“The mega container ship Dali allided with berth at Port of Antwerp during unmooring maneuvers for leaving the port. The incident happened in good weather and was caused by mistake of the Master and pilot on board.

“The container carrier had substantial stern momentum, which caused allision with the stone wall of the quay. Following the incident, the vessel Dali suffered sufficient damages in the stern and transom. The container ship remained afloat, but has some breaches near the waterline and will need of repairs. The berth was also seriously damaged and closed for cargo handling operations due to safety reasons.

“The container ship Dali was detained and docked to Deurganckdok, Antwerp, where will be repaired and fully inspected before released to return in operations. The vessel will have some delay from the time schedule. Fortunately during the accident there were no injured people and water pollution.

“Dali (IMO: 9697428) has overall length of 300.00 m, moulded beam of 48.00 m and maximum draft of 11.00 m. The deadweight of the carrier is 111,032 DWT and the gross tonnage is 94,730 GRT. The vessel was built in 2015 by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korean. The owner of the container ship Dali Greek company Oceanbulk Maritime, but currently vessel is chartered by Maersk Line.”

IMO:9697428
MMSI:563004200
Callsign:9V5283
Width:48.0 m
Length:300.0 m
AIS type: Cargo Ship
Flag: Singapore
Gross tonnage: 95128 (tons) — 95,000 tons times 2,000 pounds (per ton) makes the ship’s weight up to 190,256,000 — over 190 million pounds.
Accelerating 190 million pounts to 8 knots speed from a standstill at dock not even 6 miles away is basically impossible.  Someone is lying about the speed or omitting other information.

Local news interviewed nearby resident who reported ‘it sounded like an earthquake’.  ??  No camera footage of the impact exhibits any shaking or shuddering whatsoever, so …what earthquake?

 

(1) What (obviously) bent and warped and (possibly) melted the structural steel girders?  Was this merely grinding, crushing, distorting massive force, or was another factor involved?  Let’s not suddenly start re-believing the lying, controlled mass-media just yet.

Baltimore Key Bridge Collapse — What melted its steel girders? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXZh-si8RoQ

What melted the structural steel girders?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Sunm6VtHRo
Melted structural steel girders — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3UYNj_8R78

 

Baltimore Key Bridge – melted metal, DEW attack?

(2) What caused all ship power to instantly turn-off, then after a brief few moments back-on, and soon thereafter back off again, and then on during the actual impact with bridge pilings?  No redundancies and all power going thru ‘one wire’, ‘one connector’, ‘one path’, ‘one point of failure’ ??  That would be absurdly wrong.  So what possibly explains the totality off/on/off shown in video?

(3) How was the massive, heavy ship brought up to its (officially-reported) 8 knots (9pm) speed within only a few miles of acceleration distance (from the dock to the bridge)?  What engine could possibly do that?  (see math calc below) — see (14) about how the massive, heavy, inertial ship stopped-on-a-dime directly bow-over the bridge piling.  LOL

(4) Does such a calamity appear in SIMPSONS or other predictive-programming mass-media?  LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND movie by Obamas?

Predictive programming in mass media — THE WIRE season 2 episode 1 — boat w/ “electrical problem”, “engines are dead”, “in the shipping channel” near the same pillar that was hit today — also in other episodes, drug vials named “PANDEMIC” were available (and yelled-out by street-corner barkers). Party-boat’s name “CAPITAL GAINS / WASHINGTON DC”. No doubt a TOTAL coincidunce, just like episode 1 of James Burke’s 1979 CONNECTIONS series having Flight 911 threatening to crash into NY skyscraper — but “who could have imagined?!?” LOL  — THE WIRE video montage at around that engines-dead / electrical-problem boat scene include cutaways to urban decay that subjectively resembles the downed FSK bridge.

‘DARK KNIGHT RISES’ PREDICTIVELY-PROGRAMS BRIDGE COLLAPSES

https://www.bitchute.com/video/WNVdAUwJXgZG/

It doesn’t really name the Key Bridge nor identify it visually, but it does show several bridges demolished, so it’s kind of a vague and indirect programming, and one that is wholly imaginable, predictable anyway.

IMO, THE WIRE pred-prog is much more powerful because it identifies (a) the electrical problem; (b) the engine problem; (c) shipping lanes location; (d) precise city; (e) precise bridge; (f) precise pillar of the bridge; (g) involvement of comparative ‘upper class’ (i.e., pleasure cruise patrons).

At any rate, aren’t you tired of being played like a fool?  Baltimore Mayor: RE the Key Bridge collapse: “…it looked like something out of ah, ah action movie” right at the beginning of this video.

Leave the World Behind movie — WAS THE BALTIMORE BRIDGE COLLAPSE A PLANNED RITUAL

https://www.bitchute.com/video/nXPs1CbJXgNl/

“A ship crashing would be the precursor, the start of a chain of events that would lead to the downfall of America, the destruction of the USA.” – movie produced by Barack Obama.

This movie has eerily called out the rise in ‘mad deer’ cases.

The 2.1 million Teslas that were recalled.

The supposed hacking of USA infrastructure.

This movie even eerily called-out the weird SMS text messages (reported to have been received by numerous individuals during AT&T’s recent “blackout”).

What is left for this movie to “predict” ?

A major plane crash.

Civil War 2.0 outbreak.  NASA / alien deception.  Bunkers / panic rooms.

13 days from date of bridge collapse is April 8, incredible alignment, coincidunce and eclipse date.

“This is all a script, and we can all see it play out in their movie, which is essentially just a documentary for them; it’s an instruction manual.”

 

 

(5) How was the ship pointed directly at the comparatively slim support?  Or, if it wasn’t (as it indeed should not have been), how was the power-ailing ship guided to such an impact perfectly-aimed to cause maximum damage?

(6) How were so few cars on the bridge, which reportedly carries 35,000 vehicles daily?  (Fewer potential fatalies = fewer angry families, questions, insurance claims, lawsuits)

News reports claim the captain notified Md Dept Transportation, which sounds like baloney — from video comments: “Ship would never alert md dept transport — and even if they did, why did md dept transport leave its road crew up there w/o evac warning?!? It’s baloney. First would be harbormaster, coast guard, md state police — in fact, in a panic, it would go out on vhf channel 16 and also via cellphone to 911.”

The span of time between Dali’s first lights-out under-power was not even two minutes before piling impact / bridge collapse.  Someone is lying and/or omitting info.

Note – initial report to fire rescue was 13 persons in the water — source 1:40 into https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxtr4IaVdOA

(7) How was only one container ship in-motion in the busy and increasingly-busier (until now) ports of Baltimore?  (Per Peggy Hall — is it normal for cargo ships to depart at 1am and at such speed?)

 

(8) Why was the container ship’s plotted course so hard-starboard, so near the bridge piling?  Course is middle-of-channel, for least potential screw-up, unless other vessels seen or known approaching.  All of this manuevering is done electronically.

From video comments: “since the ship was moving straight prior to loss of power (and also apparently straight during loss of power) I assumed the rudder was straight prior to (and during) loss of power, and that’s why it doesn’t make sense to me that it changed course (and only after it regained power). are you saying that it will change course even if the rudder is straight?”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39w6aQFKSQ

(10) Will the cleanup be used as excuse to annihilate the historically-important island called Fort Carroll?

(11) Bow and both sides of the Deck surface of container ship all lean massively over the ship’s hull; however, video of collision shows the impact beginning at the water-level.  How is it possible the leading edges of the bow did not impact the bridge superstructure before the hull impacted the submerged support pilings?  An examination of the un-struck piling shows no large/wide rock-fortified “island” that otherwise might explain the water-level-first impact / splash.  The impact should have occured first at the ship’s deck-level, higher up along the bridge’s support structure.  Also, at least one video has been seen heavily edited, to remove the water-level-first wave-impact.

See the overhanging “proud bow” of similar container ship creating zero water-level splash even while alliding with the dock — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDOMhCCpTnQ

This lack of splash reinforces the question — at Baltimore Key Bridge, with DALI’s similar overhanging proud bow, what exactly caused the massive “splash” (or, possibly, instantaneous pulverization / dustification witnessed on the perfectly-lit, perfectly-framed, perfectly-timed “Zapruder 2.0” video as appearing at the water-line?

Curiously, aftermath video shows the entire reinforced concrete piling is largely powderized; even more curiously is the extreme right-angle bending of nearly all rebar reinforcements that had been encased within the concrete piling.  The underhanging bow keep was not involved, it did not collide with the bridge’s pillar.  Is this not evidence of some additional energy having been involved in the pulverization / dustification of the bridge piling?

In fact the image below shows the entire southern piling was pulverized / dustified.  What exactly impacted this, so far beyond the edge of the ship, to cause such profound damage?

Also, what melted the steel girders draped and hanging like wet spaghetti noodles over top of the second, northern bridge piling?  (And the melted steel girders also appearing around the northern piling whose only force was the see-saw whiplash effect?)  Why is this material being removed first by the ‘large crane’, versus clearing the economically far more important shipping channel closest to the southern piling?

Note below the “melted” structural steel girders.  The “melting” only appears at the girders located near the two main pilings.  No other melted / wilted / strangely-impossibly-bent-without-craking-steel-or-peeling-paint girders appear in any of the other debris.

Also, the large crane was photographed / video’d immediately south of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge less than 24 hours after the Key Bridge catastrophe, indicating pre-knowledge, pre-planning, pre-marshalling of recovery resources (i.e., the crane), or else more amazing coincidunce.

 

 

Bridge support islands are non-existent, and ship’s deck overhangs bow at water-line; however, video shows initial impact at water-level – how is this possible?

(12) At such close location to land and bridge structures, 8 knots speed for a kilo-ton cargo ship is absurd and surely criminally negligent.

(13) Waves / wake from 8 knots speed would be massive.  None are visible in any videos.

(14) So this massive heavy ship pushes over the bridge which folds up like playing cards, and then the ship just stops-on-a-dime, dead-in-the-water, barely having past its bow over the bridge piling?!  Comically absurd!  At the very least it would have continued in straight-line right on down the channel, particularly given its supposed ‘loss of power’ steering, etc.  If it did somehow, impossibly, become lodged on the bridge piling, its massive inertial force would have swept its stern crossways in a form of “spinout”.  The abrupt stop is another tell-tale of someone lying not giving all facts.

The more that I look, the more anomalies and impossibilities that I see.

Is this another aspect of the Black Swan Flock calamity?

Ports of Baltimore closed.  Supply chain destruction.  Hazardous and oversized cargo are not permitted through the harbor tunnels.

 

Being reporting on WTOP news not even 12 hours after the event:

Replacement bridge — $5 billion, 5 years

 

How could the massive container ship accelerate to 8 knots in under 6 miles ??

Plotted course so near the bridge support is suspect.

 

 

===

how much distance does it require for a 4,000,000-pound container ship to accelerate to reach a speed of 8 knots ?

===

To calculate the distance required for a 4,000,000-pound container ship to accelerate to reach a speed of 8 knots, we can use the basic physics formula for acceleration:

Distance = Initial velocity + Final velocity times Time taken / 2

First, let’s convert the speed from knots to feet per second, as it will make the calculations easier.

1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour = 1.15078 miles per hour

1 mile = 5280 feet

8 knots = 8 times 1.15078 times 5280 feet per hour
approx 8 times 6076 feet per hour
approx 48608 feet per hour

Now, let’s convert the time taken from hours to seconds, as the acceleration formula requires time in seconds.

1 hour = 3600 seconds

Let’s assume the time taken to accelerate is  t  seconds.

t  hours = t / 3600

Using the acceleration formula:

Distance = 0 feet per second + 48608  feet per second times t seconds / 2

Since the initial velocity is 0 (assuming the ship starts from rest), we can simplify the formula:

Distance = 48608 feet per second times t seconds / 2

Now, we need to find the time taken for the ship to accelerate. We can use the formula for acceleration:

Acceleration = Change in velocity / Time taken

Since the ship accelerates from rest to a velocity of 48608 feet per second (8 knots), the change in velocity is 48608 feet per second.

Acceleration = 48608 feet per second / seconds

Solving for t:

t = 48608 feet per second / Acceleration

The acceleration of the ship can vary, but for the sake of calculation, let’s assume a moderate acceleration rate of 1 foot per second squared.

t = 48608 feet per second / 1 foot per second ^2
t = 48608 seconds

Now that we have the time taken to accelerate, we can calculate the distance using the simplified formula:

Distance = 48608 feet per second times 48608 seconds / 2

Distance = 2360926464 feet / 2

Distance = 1180463232 feet

Therefore, it would require approximately 1,180,463,232 feet or approximately 224 miles for a 4,000,000-pound container ship to accelerate to reach a speed of 8 knots, assuming a moderate acceleration rate of 1 foot per second squared.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is a significant structure that plays a crucial role in the supply chain shipping industry. Here are the details of the bridge and its importance to supply chain shipping:

### 1. Location and Design

The Francis Scott Key Bridge spans across the Patapsco River, connecting the communities of Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County. It is a steel through-arch bridge with a main span of 1,200 feet and a total length of approximately 4.4 miles, including approach spans. The bridge’s vertical clearance of 185 feet above the water allows large vessels to pass underneath without obstruction.

### 2. Importance to Shipping

1. **Gateway to Ports:** The Francis Scott Key Bridge serves as a critical gateway to the Port of Baltimore, one of the busiest ports on the East Coast of the United States. It provides direct access for cargo ships, container vessels, and bulk carriers entering and exiting the port, facilitating the movement of goods and commodities in the supply chain.

2. **Connection to Transportation Networks:** The bridge is an essential link in the region’s transportation infrastructure, connecting maritime shipping activities at the port with major highways, including Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway) and Interstate 95. This connectivity enables seamless transportation of goods between the port, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and markets across the country.

3. **Support for Trade and Commerce:** By accommodating large vessels and heavy cargo traffic, the Francis Scott Key Bridge supports international trade and commerce. It allows for the efficient import and export of goods, raw materials, and products, contributing to economic growth, job creation, and competitiveness in global markets.

4. **Logistical Efficiency:** The bridge’s strategic location and design contribute to logistical efficiency in supply chain operations. It helps streamline the movement of containerized cargo, bulk commodities such as petroleum products and grain, and specialized shipments, enhancing the overall flow of goods through the port and distribution networks.

5. **Reliability and Safety:** Ensuring the structural integrity and operational reliability of the Francis Scott Key Bridge is paramount to the safety and security of maritime and land-based transportation activities. Regular inspections, maintenance, and modernization efforts are undertaken to uphold safety standards and minimize disruptions to supply chain operations.

### Conclusion

The Francis Scott Key Bridge stands as a vital infrastructure asset that facilitates supply chain shipping, trade, and economic activity in the Baltimore region and beyond. Its strategic location, connectivity to transportation networks, and support for maritime commerce underscore its importance as a key component of the maritime supply chain and logistics ecosystem.

more misc comments:

“The kinetic energy of a fully loaded 900ft container ship traveling at 8knots, is around 2.5 times the kinetic energy of an Airbus a320 flying at cruising speed. That’s a lot of energy!”

— “Yeah, it’s no wonder the bridge didn’t evaporate into dust, all structural steel dustified; equally miraculous that the plane, er, ship, didn’t get swallowed up by that wet water, leaving no trace, kinda like flight 93. Good thing Baltimore ain’t no NYC nor Shanksville !!”

 

“I think escort tugs past critical structures like bridges should have been the standard for any ship that can take out a pier like that.

“These are the accidents that create those standards. Unfortunately safety regulations are written in blood.”

“No way this monster got up to 8 knots un in under 6 miles from dock. Someone is lying somewhere, omitting info.”

 

 

===

As of my last update in January 2022, the Port of Baltimore handles a diverse range of import and export products. However, one of the major import products at the Port of Baltimore is automobiles and light trucks. The port is a major gateway for importing vehicles, including cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles, from manufacturers around the world.

Additionally, the Port of Baltimore handles a significant volume of containerized cargo, including commodities such as machinery, electronics, appliances, chemicals, food products, and consumer goods. The port’s strategic location, excellent transportation infrastructure, and efficient handling facilities make it a preferred choice for various importers and exporters.

It’s important to note that import trends can evolve over time based on market demand, economic factors, and global trade dynamics. Therefore, for the most up-to-date information on the major import products at the Port of Baltimore, it is recommended to consult official port statistics and reports or industry sources.

Interesting to see in KTLA video the DALI anchor chain dropping nearly straight-down, as if dropped after ship halted; versus what would be expected: the anchor chain pulled taughtly at steep angle toward the  stern, as it had reportedly been dropped before and dragged along at high-speed / 8 knots:

40 years prior, another container ship, which also lost power, hit the same pillar.

2024-0401 — Like an April Fools joke, US Army Col. Estee S Pinchasin invoked the 911 catchphrase at 0:45 into this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP1aLgvDo4Q — “What we’re seeing in the water is that the wreckage has been completely collapsed; some people use the ‘pancaked’.”

Also equally odd is the mystery rubble present atop the submerged bridge wreckage —https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP1aLgvDo4Q

Other weirdness:

“Conspiracy theories” exist and persist viciously because the officials and authorities relied upon to tell the truth very rarely do so punctually and far less so entirely.

This is bizarre as Hell, too, given that THE WIRE season 2 episode 1 actually has a boat that “loses electrical power” with “engines out” goes adrift “in the shipping channel” LOL —

“David Simon, the creator of the HBO series “The Wire” and a famed Baltimore native, began fact-checking some of the more ludicrous false claims as they circulated on X on Tuesday.” — under the heading “Jewish space lasers” on this CNN page https://www.cnn.com/2024/03/28/politics/baltimore-bridge-collapse-conspiracy-theories/index.html

BG&E Moves its high-tension lines just in time
Note that BG&E rushed and defied plandemic keep-apart ‘guideline/orders’ to move its high-tension lines from underneath Baltimore Key Bridge, just-in-time to avoid the (pre-planned?) demolition of the bridge in March, 2024.  Conjecture  defying “coincidunce”.

“Most large construction projects break ground with a ceremonial shovel jabbed into loose soil. To kick off the Key Crossing Reliability Initiative, BGE drove a steel pile into 100 feet of soft mud beneath the Patapsco River.”It’s a fitting start to construction of such a significant infrastructure project.

“Underwater transmission cables in this shipping thoroughfare to the Port of Baltimore are nearing the end of their useful life. Multiple studies on replacing this “Key Crossing” segment, which was installed in the 1970s, determined that running new power lines high above the water would have a fraction of the environmental impact on the Patapsco River and its wildlife and be far less disruptive to port operations. Plus, overhead replacement would be half the cost of the underwater alternative, reducing the impact to electricity bills. It would also support more local jobs.

“What followed was extensive planning, permitting, and outreach to key stakeholders—including environmental groups, elected officials, government agencies, and community leaders. The BGE project team received all necessary federal, state, and local permits prior to construction, and incorporated stakeholder feedback into the final design wherever possible.

“Key Crossing construction began in early June 2020 and is expected to be completed in two years. Glen Burnie-based McLean Contracting is leading this initial stage from two massive crane barges. Their task: drive 120 steel piles deep into the Patapsco riverbed. The piles will be grouped into five clusters, which will each support a concrete foundation for one of the five new transmission towers for high-voltage wires strung across this two-mile wide river parallel with the Francis Scott Key Bridge.
